What is DigiD?
DigiD is stands for Digital identification and is a tool that you will come across in The Netherlands rather sooner than later.
If you want to use the digital services of health insurance providers, healthcare providers, pharmacies and national, regional or local governmental organisations you are very likely required to use DigiD.
Therefore, you are advised to apply for DigiD upon arrival. At our Healthcare for internationals (H4i) information site you can read how to apply for and manage your DigiD.
